being prayed for a day or so before he was going in for surgery.
Be kind, you never know when
you are entertaining angels.
They are sent to watch over you
To keep you safe
To remind you of who you are
To report your deeds to the throne
of God, good or bad
Do not anger your angel, he/she is the eyes and ears of God and they have
authority over you
Thank your angel(s)
Be Holy as He is Holy
We are surrounded by danger everywhere. Demonic forces continue their battle against the followers of Christ. God allows this, in order for us to be able to exhibit spiritual steadfastness and fealty to the Trinity. But in this daily and hourly struggle we are provided by God with great defenders and helpers - the holy angels, headed by the seven highest archangels; Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Salaphiel, Jegudiel, Barachiel.
Archangel Michael from that time the God expelled Lucifer (Satan) from Heaven, became the head of the entire heavenly host. For his zeal in working for God he is honored by the Church even to this day.
Archangel Gabriel has been entrusted with the service of being messenger to mankind.
He came with the Lordís tidings of forthcoming miraculous events to the parents of St. John the Baptist, to the parents of the Holy Virgin Mary, and also to the Mother of God Herself and to the righteous Joseph. Archangel Gabriel is the messenger of Godís Providence, the attendant of miracles and divine Mysteries. When we are overcome with doubts, when it seems to us that we have been abandoned by everyone and there is no help from anywhere, let us pray to Archangel Gabriel, that by his prayers the Lord would reveal to us His most
holy will and would set our life upon the course of salvation.
Archangel Raphael is a merciful healer, sent by God to comfort the sick and the sorrowing. From the Holy Scripture we know that Archangel Raphael expelled demons from a woman. And how many 15th century people there are nowadays who are possessed by demonsÖ. Alas, both they and their relatives often turn for help to sorcerers who nowadays hide behind the pseudo-scientific name of ďextrasenses.Ē But will sorcerers, these servants of the devil, expel demons? Obviously not. The power to expel demons and heal those who are possessed by them belongs to the holy angels and particularly to Archangel Raphael. Let us ask him to intercede for us before the Lord, Giver of all good things.
The name of Archangel Uriel means the light or the fire of God. This archangel enlightens the minds and the hearts of the faithful with the light of divine truths and the fire of divine love. All those who embark upon the study of knowledge can and should pray to this archangel to enlighten their minds and hearts, in order to avoid a destructive chasm between knowledge and faith.
Archangel Salaphiel is the patron of prayer. He is even depicted so on icons: with eyes gazing downward, with hands crossed on his chest, with an air of humility and deep inner concentration. He is our primary teacher of prayer. Prayer is the most difficult thing to achieve, and one must be instructed in it. Unfortunately, some people assiduously study various worldly subjects, but disdain the study of the most important subject in the world -
the Jesus prayer. Let us pray to Archangel Salaphiel for the Lord to grant us this gift of divine prayer.
Archangel Jegudiel is the patron, defender and helper of all those who toil. And we must all be such, for we have been commanded to eat our bread in the sweat of our faces. We toil not only physically, to earn our daily bread, but also spiritually, in order to perfect ourselves. Archangel Jegudiel is depicted on icons with a crown of victory in his hands. Such crowns will be earned by those of us who will endure to the very end, who will worthily bear the light yoke of Christ. We are faced with a complex task, so let us ask Archangel Jegudiel for help in our daily lives.
Archangel Barachiel is the angel of Godís blessings. While asking God to bless all our good efforts, let us also appeal to Archangel Barachiel for help. However, we must accept the Lordís blessing not only for prosperity but also for our cross, i.e. the sorrows without which there is no salvation. And may Archangel Barachiel give us strength to carry our blessed crosses.
